Truman Capote has a natural gift that makes him a great guest at a dinner party: he is always interested in whomever he’s talking to. For one thing, he really looks at the person he is with. Most of us see outlines of one another, but Truman is noting skin texture, voice tone, details of clothing.

One of the reasons that Truman is always interested in people is that he won’t allow himself to be bored. He told me that when he meets a truly crashing bore he asks himself, “Why am I so bored? What is it about this person that is making me yawn?” He ponders, “What should this person do that he hasn’t done? What does he lack that might intrigue me?”

*Don’t allow yourself to be bored today. Be interested in whomever you’re talking to – really look at them and ask yourself what they should be doing to intrigue you more. Start reading In Cold Blood.

*Research a local place where you can go horseback riding. Reward yourself with some dark chocolate afterwards. Tennis is an option if you can’t go horseback riding.

However, most important to Lacey is not a successful acting career, but her faith. She says, “Jesus is the center of my life and I give God the glory for everything, for all my success.”

With the baking powder itself being a huge hit as a freebie, Wrigley moved on from specializing in soap to baking powder, but still continued to offer freebies. This time around, it was baking powder with free chewing gum thrown in. Soon, the chewing gum was eclipsing the baking powder in popularity.

*Remember that Facebook is free to join and Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire. Chew on that.

Her life was blighted by a plane crash, alcoholism and dramatic collapses on stage – but the ‘kid sparrow’ still provided the soundtrack to her nation, as a new film recalls.

A little over 10 years after the rape, Drescher was diagnosed with uterine cancer.

“That, I think, is a poetic correlation, because I really didn’t deal with my pain for many, many, many years with the rape,” she told Studio 10. “So when you don’t do that … I mean, I ended up with a gynecological cancer. So it kind of ends up being very poetic in where the body decides to break down and create disease.”

“It’s been a colossal learning experience,” she added. “I’m not glad I had cancer and I don’t wish it on anyone, but I am better for it. Sometimes the best gifts come in the ugliest packages.”

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
